Rowland deviates from the expected by discussing the impact of cameras on the job, making sure to point out that . This book is amazing. An absolutely wonderful informative story about the ice roads in NW Canada and the Ice Road Truckers.

Rowland deviates from the expected by discussing the impact of cameras on the job, making sure to point out that he finds their presence humorous and easy to ignore. The point, of course, is that it is all real, all unscripted, and nobody can tell him what to do, which is exactly what his millions of admirers want to hear. I have to admit I did not particularly like Polar Bear on the show, but I now have a new respect and love for him. It takes very special people to do their work in cruel climates.

After watching the series Ice Road Trucking I didnt like Hugh that much. I did not like his attitude he carries on the show. And being a truck driver myself I understand the industry, so I thought.

After reading the way Hugh was raised and the work attitude that his dad taught him, I have come away with a different opinion of Hugh. When I look at the world today as a whole, I see that the young adults have not been taught to WORK. They fell the government owes them everything. But under Hugh rough character he tells stories that helped to make him a man. How he learned at a very young age how to make money and work with his own hands.

I liked reading this book. I learned many things about trucking in Northern Canada and how if I was to truck up there I would have a hard time because I dont know what to do or how to survive the bitter cold. The people are amazing up there.

I would recommend it to anyone if they are looking for something different to read.

OH WOW!! This book is amazing. An absolutely wonderful informative story about the ice roads in NW Canada and the Ice Road Truckers. I have to admit I did not particularly like Polar Bear on the show, but I now have a new respect and love for him. It takes very special people to do their work in cruel climates. They are real men. Also, an entirely interesting documentary could be made on the building of the ice roads. I have to mention that my primary physicians brother, who is from India, works on the new bridge crossing the MacKenzie River. I live in Maryland on the east coast of the U.S. And I do not believe that the Ice Roads will ever be forgotten. I feel like it is a part of history for the entire world. Thank you Hugh!!!

This book is not what you might expect, i.e., endless folksy yarns of life on the road. It is actually very informative and thoughtful, and presents both a life and philosophy quite different from the norm. Hugh Rowland is an unapologetic hard worker who came from nothing, overcame many obstacles, successfully raised three daughters and stayed faithfully married to a high school sweetheart for over 30 years. He's partly the tough son of a bitch shown on IRT, but also very intelligent and cautious. He saves time and makes money by attention to details and thinking ahead. Those that don't, he observes, either fail and quit, or die on the ice road.

The book is thoroughly entertaining. I read it almost at one sitting.

Ride with the Polar Bear, Hugh Roland as he tell his story about the ice roads. Hugh tells how he grew up learning to drive trucks, cats and other equipment in Canada. He talks about the dangers of making a trail where there are no trails, breaking ground and forging through the brush to make iceroads where there are none. He talks about fights and the rough and tumble men of the diamond mines, the long hours in the sub zero tempuratures, and the dangers of riding on thin ice.

Purchased for a school library grades 7-12. Strong interest for the boys who drive, or want to drive, trucks. Comfortable reading for anyone, each chapter has exciting problems, writer is an honorable family man, a piece of history which is vanishing due to the climate warming, written after the television show produced and has some notes about the difficult filming process. You feel like you are riding along with the writer over the years he has driven the ice roads.

If you know Hugh this book just expands what you already knew. It's an interesting read I felt.

LoboThommy
This book gives a different view of life on the ice road. It is very informative. I was quite amazed at the requirements before you can drive on the ice road. It also gives a different view of Hugh Rowland to the man we see on television.

Love reading and watching the Ice Road Truckers things. Fascinating.
